The Masai Mara National Reserve is Kenya's most visited game reserve with teeming wildlife including the Big Five. There are large populations of lion in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

 
The park is named after the local Maasai people, who have a fascinating culture that centers around their cattle, and the Mara River, which divides the park.

The Masai Mara National Park is approximately 1 510km² and only 275km's from Nairobi (though the roads can slow you down). Flights are available daily from Nairobi and several airstrips are in the Greater Masai Mara National Park.

Serengeti safari
The best time to visit is between July and October for the Annual Great Migration. Visitors witness about 2 million herbivores (particularly Wildebeests, Zebra and Gazelles) passing through this area; escaping from the dryer conditions in the Serengeti in Tanzania. It is an amazing sight to see the lines of wildlife stretching as far as the eye can see across the Masai Mara plains.
 
These herbivores are tracked by the predators so game viewing of all types is at it's best. Predators include the black-maned lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and vultures.
 
As they cross the Mara River to reach the greener pastures of the Masai Mara, many fall prey to crocodiles and occasionally hippos. It is amazing to watch the wildebeest & zebra's congregating at the river bank waiting for the bravest to make the first move to cross the river while the one's that have already crossed are calling from the other side, urging them on.
 
Other wildlife found in the Masai Mara National Park are elephants, impala, giraffe, antelope, jackal, baboons, ostriches etc. Birdlife is abundant including over 53 different types of birds of prey, kestrels, hornbills, shrikes, sunbirds, herons etc.
